The Cotswolds

Tucked just a few hours west of London, the Cotswolds are a must-see destination in south central England. Running through five counties — Warwickshire, Wiltshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, and Gloucestershire — the Cotswolds each embody the idyllic features of the area: rolling hills, golden stone structures, and distinctive yellow limestone. The Costwold Way, a 102-mile walking trail, follows the Cotswold Edge escarpment from Bath to Chipping Campden.

A recent feature published in details all that’s loveable about escaping the city and heading west, while also highlighting all there is to see and do in the Cotswolds — most notably, the food. The Wild Duck Inn, a quaint countryside pub and hotel, is the first stop on author Elizabeth Danon’s trip. Staying in the oldest room in the building, dubbed The Chinese Suite, it featured a roll-top bath, rainforest shower, and four-poster bed. Stopping the following day for an overnight at The Dial House Hotel in Bourton on the Water, Danon again raved about the luxurious amenities available on site.

The Cotswolds cover an 800-mile stretch of lush greenery and are teeming with activities and things to do.
